LEBANON, OH. - Some very quick miles highlighted the Saturday night program at Miami Valley Raceway, including a four-year-old track record 1:51.1 clocking by Neat in an $11,000 top conditioned pace. Thebestofjoel and Feel The Heat dueled throughout the mile setting up a perfect trip for pocket-sitting Neat and driver Jeff Nisonger. In just his seventh lifetime win, Neat lowered his own record by over two seconds and eclipsed the Miami Valley standard previously owned by Gold Rocks by three-fifths of a second. The winning son of Art Major is owned by Miller Racing Stable and Dorothy Miller and trained by Ryan Miller. The $18,000 championship leg of the Sovereign Warrior Series for conditioned horses was also presented with Ideal Race (Chris Page) edging Feel N Funk E (Andy Shetler) and ER Zach Attack (Tyler Smith) in 1:53.1. Burke Racing and Weaver Bruscemi own the nine-year-old son of Western Terror who now has 35 wins and almost $840,000 in earnings. Sovereign Warrior was one of the toughest racehorses to come out of southwest Ohio, winning 64 races during the 1970's for trainer-driver Ralph Lunsford. The featured weekly $15,500 Open Handicap Pace also went postward on Saturday with At Press Time (Chris Page), who finished fourth in the final heat of the Little Brown Jug last September, upsetting older adversaries in 1:52.3. Heavily favored Mykindachip (Kayne Kauffman) coasted through fractions of :26.4, :55.4 and 1:24.3 before just falling short despite a :28 final panel. Gold Rocks (Randy Tharps) was best of the rest in the stellar field. From the press box at Miami Valley Raceway  

LEBANON, OH. - Shine N Shimmer was stunning Friday night at Miami Valley Raceway, treating the quick five-eighths mile oval as if someone laid a red carpet around it-just for her. It was just the second local race for the seven-year-old daughter of American Ideal and produced the second gate-to-wire victory against the best open class mares competing in southern Ohio. Driver Chris Page took full advantage of drawing the inside post position by exploding off the wings and forcing all rivals to find a seat during a :27.2 opening panel. With no one pressuring on the outside in the scratch-shortened field, Page managed an unexpected respite during the second quarter when the timer flashed :57.4 at the halfway station. The pace quickened from that point home with All Terror (Kayne Kauffman) launching a first-over bid and Carlina Hanover (Tyler Smith) getting a snug pocket journey. When the 1:26 flashed at the three-quarters Page called on his winning mare and she responded with a :28.2 last quarter, despite 10 degree temperatures, to put the 1:54.2 triumph in the books. Shine N Shimmer is trained by Jim Ellison for the Dandy Farms and Howard Taylor. She now has 19 career victories and $321,742 in lifetime earnings. The feature race win was one of four on the night for Chris Page, whose other tallies came with Camphor Hanover (1:56.1), trotter Over And Out (1:58.1) and Rev Me Up (1:54.2). Racing resumes Saturday night with a powerful 14-race card offering $127,500 in purses. Gregg Keidel  

LEBANON, OH. - War Cry Hall made it three in a row in O-Hi-O on Sunday afternoon at Miami Valley by capturing the $16,500 Open Trot. Harness racing driver Josh Sutton urged the winner past Mr Web Page (Chris Page) in the final strides despite a sloppy track caused by steady rainfall throughout the day. Can'tcutthatchip (Jack Dailey) was a fast-closing third in the feature race. Favored Rehab Mountain (Brad Hanners) cut fractions of :28.4, :58.4 and 1:29 before tiring in the late going. RBH Ventures Inc owns War Cry Hall, who earned $99,010 in 2014 before returning to Ohio at the beginning of the year.

LEBANON, OH. - Mykindachip stepped up to the open ranks for the first time at Miami Valley Raceway on Saturday night and stepped away with an impressive 1:52.1 win over six worthy rivals, all of whom finished within 1-1/2 lengths of each other at the wire.   The exciting finish should have come as no surprise as the seven horses had combined to win 163 races and well over $2 million in their noteworthy careers.   Dispatched as the odds-on favorite on the merits of a 1:53.2 tally in the top conditioned class last week, driver Kayne Kauffman was hellbent on putting Mykindachip on the front end when the starter's wings folded.   Firstclassallthway (Dan Noble) had similar aspirations, however, resulting in a speedy :26.2 opening panel duel. Once Mykindachip finally cleared he sailed through fractional clockings of :55 and 1:23.1 before holding off a cavalry charge in the stretch to secure the victory on another very cold night in southeast Ohio.   Rockin Finish (Randy Tharps) rallied from sixth at the head of the stretch to finish three-quarters of a length behind the winner while Firstclassallthway held on for third. Mykindachip is a six-year-old son of Art's Chip owned by Carl Atley, trained by Dan Dubeansky, and now sports career earnings just a shade under $400,000.   Two divisions of the first leg of the "Claim To Fame" series for $12,500 male pacers went postward Saturday as well. The winning time in each $10,000 split was an identical 1:53.   Jade Mountain (Kauffman) captured the first division in gate-to-wire fashion, besting Starven Darven (Greg Grismore) by three-quarters of a length with Ally-Con (Noble) garnering the show dough.   Tiza Mojo, shipping in from Chicago, copped the second division for driver Chris Page, holding off Bettor Win (Kauffman) by a half-length with DVCFlyingfrenchman (Brad Irvine) finishing third. Both winners were trained by Jeff Brewer, although Tiza Mojo will have a new conditioner next time out as he was one of four horses claimed out of the two races. The others were Starven Darven, Bettor Win and E R Pacman.   Racing resumes Sunday afternoon at Miami Valley with a 3:00 p.m. post time. Featured will be three $12,500 divisions of the first leg of the "Claim To Fame" series for $20,000 claimers. From Miami Valley Media Department

With the victory, Valentino increased his lifetime bounty to $798,632. From the press box at Dayton Raceway

Brian Brown trains for Steve Stewart, Michael Robinson, Robert Mondillo and Steve Cheatham.   Jim Pantaleano drove from post three in the full field of nine and got away an early fourth behind co-favorites, Nobles Finesse and Gray Camo. Nobles Finesse set the pace and fractions of :27.2 and :56.4 before Chief Talkalot started his first over bid with his stablemate, Rock N Randall in tow. Chief Talkalot and Nobles Finesse went toe to toe and stride for stride as they clocked the three quarters in 1:25.1, but Chief Talkalot won the battle by two lengths over Rock N Randall and Nobles Finesse completed the trifecta. Racing returns Tuesday (September 9) post time is 6:30 pm.   From Scioto Downs Racino
